    'Flawless skin', 'Full coverage foundation' etc are thrown around so much In the makeup world but I have never ever found anything that can cover up my red cheeks. My cheeks are never a perfect consistent colour and it's so annoying I find it so difficult to contour when they're not flawless colour. I've tried a green colour corrector but even that doesn't make much difference. Any recommendations for foundation or colour correctors, or tips on applying them? Or maybe a useful youtube video or something? Need help please!!

    I use Estee Lauder double wear as my fave, and it's pretty full. Not sure what you've tried. Also what application? Sponges can remove some foundation if you happen to use them.

    Otherwise, get something fuller coverage, designed for heavy imperfections - but I think they may be a bit heavy unless you've already tried something like the above.
    (eg, Kat Von D lock it, or even possibly Dermablend)

    How are you applying the green corrector? You're just supposed to dab it on lightly and put foundation on top. Don't wipe it all over your face. Make sure the brand of green corrector is good as well.

    I achieve a flawless foundation by putting one drop of beauty oil in my foundation on my hand and then using a brush damped with setting spray to buff it into the skin and finishing with fix plus spray.

    LA Girl color corrector is amazing.
